Slavic Pagans

The wise woman said
Once you're hardened in battle there's no coming back
Fight or fall

You're about to experience that firsthand, as you and the other members of your Slavic tribe are a part of an Avar-led attack force currently heading towards Singidunum.

Don't these fools realize that they're attempting the impossible? The Byzantine fortress has not been breached in 39 years, so why do you have to do this? All you ever wanted was to learn more about gods and religion, Slavic and otherwise.



As far as you're concerned, the rest of them can go die in vain... this may just be the opportunity you were looking for, to change your life from the ground up, and learn more about the gods.

This is a prequel to my other game, Vincha. It is not required that you read that one first, as this game is standalone, but you will enjoy the story more, and recognize some of the characters.

Just as was the case in Vincha, consider the world this game takes place in to be quite similar to what ours was like in the early middle ages. Except, of course, with the inclusion of many fantastical and mythological creatures, as well as magic.

As with all of my stories, pay attention to the maturity level. There are many difficult subjects explored in the story.

There are some (optional) world-building and historical links here and there. They will be recognizable by the fact your character will think, recall, or consider the topic at hand. If you&'re interested in the world, Slavic mythology, or some history of the Byzantine Empire, you may want to check them out.

Any references to Swedish metal bands, obscure German browser games, Japanese light novels, American sitcoms, or anything else are completely intentional.

Finally, there are 7 different endings. As the story is much shorter than I originally intended, I heavily recommend you try reaching them all. Each one will provide you with some information not mentioned in the other endings.

Your score represents the ending you got. Deaths not marked as an ending get a score of -1, except one special death ending that gets 69.


Vincha

Facing a new threat from the Byzantine empire, your small Slavic tribe is discussing how you can defend yourselves. They are overconfident, and you feel death will overcome you.

Upset, you go visit the temple of Prabog, an ancient Slavic god that you hope will protect you. Will you find glory or death?

I recommend trying out the obviously bad choices as well. You may find the story a tad short otherwise.

You can consider the world to be similar to ours in the 7th century except with the addition of magic and magic creatures.


What a Terrible World

A great Empire, slowly falling apart due to the mysterious and deadly plague... but you don't care about that. You have your own problems.

The world just keeps kicking you in the tender bits. Your entire life has been shit, and you're not going to take it anymore. Well, you aren't going to take anything anymore, as you are going to kill yourself.

However, fate has another plan in store for you. Will you take the opportunity presented before you by a mysterious eldritch creature? And will you lose yourself along the way? Dealing with the devil never pays off... but perhaps?

Note: The story includes a lot of dark humor, harsh language, violence, racism, rape depictions and suicide attempts. If such is not your cup of tea, stay away.

Your actions will influence the protagonist's thoughts and view of the world, as well as the actions he will automatically take, outside of your choices. Before you complain about him being a monster or a racist, consider whether you made him become so.

If you get a titled epilogue, consider that a win, even if it sucks for the protagonist. There are 5 to find. Some are rather easy to obtain, while the others can be a bit more difficult. Try to find the "good" and the "best" endings.

More than half the fucked up shit that the protagonist talks about in the beginning actually happened to the author, so you can have a fun guessing game of which is true, and which is made up.

If you believe you spotted a reference to something, be it a light novel or a totally random flash game, you did.

And remember: The higher your score, the worse person you are.

You go on a happy camping trip with your friends where absolutely nothing bad will ever happen!


Vincha (Original)

The original Vincha, in all of its rushed 2-day binge-writing glory.

You should probably read the updated version instead, this is just there to preserve the original.

Definitely. I can unchain her from the basement when it is her time. With the other one there's no happy solution.

Are you trying to perform necromancy on the forums? I see you posted in every section.

Well shit, now I just lost any respect I had for you.

Come on, DB. Dunking on Ford is where you draw the line? Really?


Criticism needed on 4/4/2024 7:39:12 PM

Darius' comment convinced me to read it now.

It feels like Walmart Love sick, as mizal said... kinda reminds me of walmart tales 2, even.

Now I gave it an 8 because Ford can suck cock, but I will say this: I am probably the person on this website this story is most likely to appeal to... and I was only mildly entertained.

The ideas I loved, and some lines were pure poetry:

Naturally, the black community can't resist an opportunity to scream race war every chance they get (the fact that your victims were not black apparently was no big deal)

 or

while the rest of your lot is robbing people of their valuables, and robbing the women of their clothing and virtue.

But the entire story was dragged down by very amateurish writing.

If you had given this to an experienced writer, to reword and rewrite basically everything while keeping the same plot (and the strong protagonist voice), this would be an amazing story.

As is, if the Neo-Nazi of the website is only mildly entertained... you've got some work to do.

> Experience a world of powerful, nuanced superheroes from the perspective of a braindead, fully-amputated quadriplegic.

This could be a well written short story tbh.

So, other than the first sentence, the dig at mara, and the last paragraph, who actually wrote this comment?


Anyone suggesting a good idea on 4/4/2024 8:36:31 AM

I really love your STATUSUPDATE page. The prose is really doing it for me.

Congratulations to Sherb! Will probably have to actually read that one at some point... the horror. Probably should check out Pancake's, as well, given that I have similar tastes to end so I'll probably like it. And, of course, I've been eyeing ben's terrorist story. Sure sounds like something I'd love.

Congrats to everyone that submitted, either way!
